Morning girls
Joy glad you could finally get out and enjoy your garden hun. Raining here today, most welcome I can tell you. The garden needs it even though I left the sprinkler on the night before last
Patti that is good of you to help a friend out.
Susan I am with you about dreading eye surgery- I would have my brain op done all over again rather than face that, But we only have one pair of eyes!! Take care of your beautifully peepers.
I don't think I would have laughed about not being told about the cancelled appointment- but thn over here my doctors don't leave message they call back. They even phone a day before an appt to make sure you can attend and haven't forgotten!!
Cat good luck with the viewings! Like Anne I'm a born organiser and loved moving, We had open house so didn't have to be there for the viewings, the estate agent saw to it all and it was a great success. We got SEVEN offers at least 5000 above the asking price!.
The only down side was having to keep on to our solicitor to keep things moving, I recall Pete asking her what she was being paid for as we were doing most of the leg work for her emoticon
Anne it was better last night wasn't it?! Pete wasn't wriggling so much so I slept though to 6.30!!! Sorry to hear about the death in the family and DS and DIL's struggle for a baby. Hope it happens for them soon, is it on the NHS? The postcode lottery for IVF is quite random so I'm told. Best of luck to them and I'm sure they welcome your support and all you do for them emoticon

Well, like I said rain, so sticking to getting the chores done today and a proper Full Body workout on the multi gym. I feel I'm ready!

Happy hump day ladies emoticon

Cat I really enjoy moving house I love the organising planning and packing, but not the selling and showing people round my home and the waiting and legal side to inalienable completion. It is hard work lots of calorie burning.
Much cooler last night so I slept well till 5 the heat has made nights very uncomfortable. Do gets back late afternoon from attending his aunts funeral. DS and DIL have had a disappointing day yesterday undergoing IVF with a donor egg and out of 6 eggs 5 nothing and 1 not safe so clinic has said they can have another attempt with new donor egg for free. Mentally and physically exhausting for them. I support from a distance which is hard.

Hi all. Another busy day for me with running around and packing.
The for sale sign went up this afternoon. We are ready for the place to show, or rather as ready as we can be. I have to remember that we are moving so people won't expect our house to be perfectly 'groomed'. Besides, when then get in and see the view of the water and mountain they will not even look at the dust!

Good morning Ladies,

I was up early to go to an eye appointment but when I got there, I found out it was cancelled. They did call and leave a message but not on my phone. They accidentally called a different patient. Had a good laugh over that. It has been rebooked for Friday and thank goodness that was a clear scheduled day for me. Have to stay on top of the cataracts to be sure they are not getting worse.
I am not looking forward to that surgery when it is needed although my mom and everyone tells me it's nothing to have done.

It is another hot day here and I am just waiting to here from my mother to see if she wants me togo in to her place today since am free now.
I am sending out best wishes to all for a great day with lots of healthy living in it.

I spent yesterday morning in the yard and was rewarded by a little over an inch of rain after! Going back out this morning and pull weeds while the ground is still soft.

I just returned from a 7.5 MILE power walk done at 4.25 MPH. I am happy wit that time as I took a different route this time.
I was well equipped with water and it was slightly challenging in the end but I feel great right now that I just had a cool shower. I saw lots of people on my route playing Pokemon Go and was sure hoping that none of those little critters could be seen floating around me LOL..

My grandson was out last night walking with his friends until 2:30 in the morning. I finally texted him to remind him that he had to be at work for 10:00 am. He is staying in tonight as he is working a 12 hour shift tomorrow.

Hope everyone is having a great evening. It is hot here and humidity is rather high at 83% but I still findit pleasant enough to enjoy the outdoors.

Yesterday was very pleasant at the friends house. Eight people and we sat in a beautiful wooded area and ate and laughed and just have a very pleasant time.
Today has been packing and cleaning and making calls arranging for things to happen.
Found out the builders is NOT including the window screens in the new house. There's one on the sliding door but none on the windows and we just assumed they would be installed prior to possession. NOT! Who ever heard of such a thing?

Caz, you are just as busy outside.
Joy, I am sorry you are not up to your own standards! But I but you can still spin most people half your age.
Susan, enjoy the respite from the heat with that rain.

Today I awoke to the most glorious site RAIN! I wish it rained all day but by noon the sun was out and once again it was like a steam bath outside. While I like this hot weather, I have been watching out for all the wildlife and birds that are suffering from it. I have been placing bowls of water outside at night time and refilling the birdbath 2 and 3 times a a day.

I started my day doing a power walking video and am going to get out side after dinner and do a real power walk on the canal path I love to travel.

I saw my hygienist today to get my teeth cleaned and checked and now I am back to get change and get out for my walk. Will be taking plenty of water as it is still 86F out there with the humidity at 90% The heat isn't as bad as the humidity. I am thinking of taking a swim in the canal along the way so it will cool me down and give me a little change in the fitness routine. Putting a bathing suit on under my clothes.

Sending best wishes out to all for a fabulous evening.

Good morning!! OMG, I think I'm too old for weekend trips. I had an early morning swim on the schedule, but that didn't happen. I slept until 6:00! It's going to be super hot again today. I'm going into zombie mode now. I look like I'm moving, but really, I am completely lacking in brain power. Moving only by reflex and instincts. Don't throw anything complicated at me. Haha.

Good Morning All,
Slow starting this morning, feeling yesterday's yoga workout in my shoulders and arms (modified push-ups too). Having coffee now and plan to get out for a little while in the yard this morning and do a "poop patrol". Since I haven't been walking Sugar, I have to keep up with that. Usually it's taken care as I pick up daily on our walks. Thankful that she a Xena have a big yard for these times when I'm more housebound. Should be out there by 8:30.
Thank you all for the kind responses on my blog; lots of early risers among my friends -- and early time zones! emoticon

We did not get the storms predicted last night so hoses need to be hooked up too. This morning they have been predicting rain, again, for the next 7 days. I can hope but they have no credibility for Lexington anymore. Something in the topography steers it elsewhere.

Make it a great day everyone! Stay safe. Where there's a will there's a way! Smiles.

Anne lovely way to spend the day, perfect balance, We had lunch in the garden, glorious to sit and enjoy the fresh air in peace and quiet,
Joy shame you could not attend the Jazz, but in that heat?! wise lady.
Susan hope you all enjoyed the BBQ
Jeri welcome home, glad you're feeling more confident on your bike.
Cat emoticon

Well,I managed to get most of the dead wood/leaves and debris from that Yukka yesterday,took 2 hours, some leaves would not come away easily so assume there is still life in them ( will have another check on them in a couple of months to keep on top of it now) nearly lost my glassed several times among the leaves LOL.
But it's done, just a few bushes to trim and reshape now and Pete's promised to get that done for me...hopefully by Wednesday when the recycling guys come. All in all I now have the council's large brown bin full plus SIX canvas sacks for them. I think I shall have flutter my eyelashes. Actually they,Barry and Mick, are pretty amenable guys, sure they'll take it all for me.

Beach walk this morning and a workout then enjoying this weather while it lasts emoticon

Checking in. I'm back from the trip. Lots of fun!! We biked 15 miles of trails yesterday, with lots of elevation changes. I'll never being completely confident on a bicycle, but I realized yesterday that I have no reason to doubt my bike skills. I was zipping down hills, around curves, and across rutted out trails, and avoiding fallen limbs and giant rocks like someone who has been riding trails forever! We really had a good time. Our cottage was very plain, but it was out in the woods, and it was peaceful. I blogged. But I'm tired, and I need to unpack. I'll catch up on everyone tomorrow.

Happy Sunday Ladies,
this morning it is cloudy so it doesn't feel as hot right now. I am hoping it stays this way as we are having a barbecue with my aunt, uncle, son Ryan and granddaughter Elise.

Next week Elise is moving back to her moms which is up in Listowel after living here with my son for the past 4 years. Last summer she met a boy and they have been a couple since then. He lives in London and goes to school in Stratford and my granddaughter has decided to move back because of him. I feel badly for my son however with all that is coming up with the transplant it is just as well. She is only 16 and had to endure his 2 heart attacks, hospitalization and his heart surgery so she will be better off with her mother and other family as Ryan goes through everything. Having her here today may be the last time we see her for a while although being a teenager, she doesn't spend a great deal of time with us lately anyway.

Don't know what is up with my weight but it seems to be up a bit. I have been staying within my calories and continuing with my fitness yet I have put on a couple of pounds.
I need to reassess what I am eating as opposed to how much. I think I have been getting too much fat in my diet and need to cut back on it.

I have been allowing for ice cream every night for dessert but only a cup. Perhaps I better cut back on it and just allow it once ina while. I have also allowed for some wine this summer from time to time but I have decided that the wine will be cut out now until after the transplant. Hubby bought a small bottle for today but I have removed it from the fridge and put it away. Hubby doesn't drink wine so it can wait and be used at Christmas time. emoticon

Well, I guess I better move myself or my butt might stick to this chair this morning. I did get a good night sleep after only 4 hours the night before but I still feel a bit tired.

Last night I started leaving a bowl of water out in the driveway for any animals out there that need a drink Will refill it twice dasily with fresh water. It is so dry here it wouldn't take much to start a fire. The grass feels likes shards of glass as it breaks under your feet when you walk. I refuse to waste the water on the grass plus it is too costly to be using for lawns.

Verna, I love the car story.

Have an awesomely great day today everyone and hope it's filled with healthy living.

Good Morning All! Quite a few here already this morning! Nice to "see" you! Everyone trying to beat the heat. I've already decided to skip Jazz at the winery today. Temps are going to be in the mid 90's and the humidity is high already. Still no rain, at least in my neighborhood. All kinds predicted and it just goes around us or hops over us. Yard really needs it. Beds are still doing OK; I need to water the container plants. Enjoy your Sunday. Stay Safe.

Looks like Caz has covered everything emoticon Yesterday was a bit too much so after my walk/run parkrun I was fit for very little. Admire everyones activity. I was up and did go out for a slow 3mile run this morning so beat the heat. Had breakfast in the garden and although there are some bushes I could fight to get under control the sun loungers are out! DH aunt died last week so he if flying home tomorrow for funeral on Tue and back on Wed so just finishing arrangements it is 2 connecting flights with no real choice of times. I will be working so just a couple of evenings alone which i will quite enjoy. Have a good day all

HI Girls
I thought I posted yesterday but it looks like I missed.
Good to see you all so active (as always).

Susan glad to hear such positive news
Joy you and Cat you are so right about this heat, loving it but it's hard work.
Joy great selfie!
Verna.......... emoticon WAY TOO close to reality emoticon

Hottest day so far yesterday here 98!! and sticky with it.

Spent most of yesterday morning gardening; mowed all the lawns and edged them and then spent about 2 hours pulling off all the dead leaves from a huge Yukka type plant in the front garden, I've been putting off doing it as I tried before and they would not pull away easily and I tried cutting some out but that made it look even more untidy.
Filled two large canvas bags!!!
After 2 hours I'd had it in the heat- intend finishing it once and for all after brekkie before the temperature rises. And I feel it safe to do a gentle UB workout after. Very light weights. I reckon as I've been hauling the garden waste bags and shopping around I can safely do it.

Hi everyone. Hope all is well at your end I found this in my e-mail a few minutes ago and thought I would share it with you:

If My Body Were a Car!

This is funny but scary - how true it is !!!

If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull...
But that's not the worst of it.

My headlights are out of focus,
And it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it.

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter,
Either My Radiator Leaks or My Exhaust Backfires!

Have a wonderful day everyone LOL Joy I love that pic of you, you look so healthy.

Thanks CAT. I did have a nice afternoon and actually got in a decent amount of activity. Only brief periods of going out in the heat and drinking more water than usual. My body will be in transition for awhile, no guarantee it will ever be 100% but I'll sure give it my best shot. Not the predictable body I was used to. But, Life is good.

Hi all.

Verna, I wish I was as efficient as you think!! This house goes on the market Tuesday. The new house won't close until about 8-15.
My help did not show, answer his phone, or call. I am livid. There are so few people to help do this type of manual work that I am having difficulties finding someone else.
Susan, glad you had a good anniversary evening. And congratulations to you on 39 years.
Everyone, stay cool.

Hi Ladies, just taking a break for a moment from al the housework. It is too hot to go outdoors for but a few minutes. I think this is the hottest day so far.
I keep refilling the bird bath as it heats up so quickly and the poor birds are loving taking baths and getting fresh water from it. I feel so sorry for the animals that need water and have to hunt for it.

Getting lots of housework done so incorporating fitness into it with doing some stretched and lunges etc.
Sending everyone best wishes for a great day and hope it is a healthy one.

Good morning everyone. I hope all you gals that are living in the Heat Belt are taking care not to be outside for long periods of time. I think those are wasted words on our Energizer Bunnies, Jerri and Susan though. LOL

Cat, sounds like the packing/moving is coming along nicely and good to hear someone is coming to help. When you decide to do something you mean business. It's only a few days since you bought your new home and already you are moving in. I assume your present home has been sold as well. I'm thinking August 1 must be possession day.

Jerri, enjoy those caves. It should be cool in them.

Joy you have the same idea as I do. Indoors for me during the hottest part of the day anyway. Our heat can't compare to your's though. I hope your feeling that "something is off" is simply a message from your body saying "Cool it a little bit --Relax!!"

Mayie, I like your attitude. No use beating ourselves up if we don't get as much done as we would like, as long as we are doing our best and I certainly believe we are doing just that.

Patti, that is a good idea to walk in the Mall. I have never done that ---- cause we have no indoor malls in my nearest town!!

Susan, all your news is good. May it continue for a long time!!

The morning is slipping by fast and I need to get moving. Have a great weekend everyone.

Good Morning All! Have a wonderful weekend. Above all, listen to your bodies; this heat can do strange things. It will be a mostly indoor day for me. Venturing out in small spurts. Just feeling something is "off". Hmmmm . . Possibly just needing recovery time from an active week. I can do that. Stay well everyone!

Good evening Ladies,

I had an awesome day yesterday celebrating my 39th anniversary of marriage and I thank everyone for the good wishes.

We got the news that my daughter's bone scan looks good but the official results wont be in until next week. She goes for the MRI next Friday evening at 8:00 pm and this was the soonest they could get her in with it being urgent. Our healthy system is not the best but I am glad the wait won't be months.

It has been very hot and humid here today and we are under a heat warning that is to continue throughout the weekend.

In spite of it, I went out for a power walk today and managed 7.5 MILES. I was pretty hot when I got home and immediately got into a cool shower then made it a cold shower. The steam was still coming off my body for 20 minutes afterward so I know I was over heated.
I had lots of water with me and even had a bottle that I filled up from the canal to put on me as I walked when I got feeling too hot. I even stopped to wade in the canal for a couple of minutes before making the last third of my walk, I felt quite invigorated afterward and I even took Tyson out after dinner but we went to the park where we went into the sprinkler system so I could get him cooled down as well as myself without me looking like a big kid.

Tyson didn't like the sprinklers but afterward I allowed him to run free in one of the fields at the park where there were no people or cars. He loved it and is very obedient so he came right back when I told him to.

I think I will do a bit of strength training in about an hour then will spend the rest of the evening relaxing. It's been a good day and I am finding myself more at ease and not worrying about outcomes that I have no control over.
Keeping positive for sure.

Hi gals.
Dogs to the groomer today and we are all tired from that!
I find it incredible all the long term relationships on this team. Very good, and inspiring.
The heat you folks are experiencing makes me glad I live where I do.
We had lighting bolts and thunder last evening and through the night. Those are both rare west of the Cascades and only happens once every couple years. The dogs were frightened and one cat hid in the tub.
Still have lots to do for this move and hopefully getting some help tomorrow if the guy coming seems decent.
Glad to hear you are all active and happy.

Morning all.
Trying to finish up the late flyers. Being late is one of the draw backs to listening to your body and perhaps rearranging ones' priorities. I recall (not so fondly) when I used to be rushing here and there, always pushing to get things done. Life is more relaxing now, at least at this time. In my mind I've come to realize that delivering flyers by a certain time is not really as all important as completing brain surgery. Yes, it is a job and I always do my best, but I'm not going to beat myself up if I am a little late. I like the fact that I'm being easier on myself.
Heading to someone's cottage for Sat and Sun so likely won't be around. Have a lovely weekend.

Good morning!! Started the day with a 3 mile run in the soupy air, followed by a total body workout with bands and kettlebells. After i get off work we are headed to Mammoth Cave for the weekend. We're taking our mountain bikes and hitting the trails, and, of course we are going to explore some caves. This morning my husband told me that my shorts look like "old lady short." Seriously, how old does he think I am???

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

The heat index is going to be in the 100's today with the humidity. Actual temperatures in the mid 90's so need to get moving early. GS is home from college and coming over for a visit this afternoon. Have a great weekend. Life is good.

Joy I've had a longish walk every day this week and yes it feels great to be back in the groove!
Glad to see you got some yard time in. I'll be out there this morning for an hour, some of the earth has become compacted and needs digging over
Jeri I can't imagine you in a greasy spoon place LOL
May shame you could not get your flyers done - I love watching lightening storms....as long as I'm inside LOL
Susan sounds the perfect why to spend your anniversary.For me though I'd HAVE to eat out, we do it so seldom now.

Still behind in delivering my flyers but was a busy day nonetheless. Managed to work indoors much of the day and avoided the intense heat. Lots of destruction from last evening's storm. Huge tree branches have come down and some properties experienced damage to the roofs.
One of my friends who lives on another side of the building say a beautiful rainbow last evening.
Alas, I was facing the wrong way. Rainbows . . . another demonstration of God's beauty here on earth. Good night ladies. Sleep well.

Afternoon Ladies,

hubby and I decided to grill steaks on the barbecue tonight so we picked out some nice one with some mushrooms, peppers and a spanish onion for me to braise and top the steak with.
WE also got a small strawberry cheese cake. Yes I am going to indulge today and I got a bottle of white wine as well.

Today I am going all out of my nutritional comfort zone. Of course we have baking potatoes that will go on the barbecue as well (I only eat a small half of one) as they are not my favorite food. WE have a great salad all made to go on the side and it looks like a nice dinner to me.

I ma pleased to be staying home as opposed to going buffet style (my husbands favorite) He is the one who made the final decision to stay home and I was elated. I am not one to enjoy restaurants and appreciate my back patio very much.
Today is very hot outside so not sure if we will go outside to eat our dinner or stay inside with the coolness of the air conditioning.

Jerri, you are such a fabulous athlete but not always do we find some part of the sport as interesting as the next. I like swimming very much but only for pleasure. BUT.....like you , I love running. So let that be your slice of cake. I'm sure there are biathlons that you could participate in or tri's that you can have a partner do the water race portion of the race.

Wishing everyone a fabulous day

An incredible storm blew through last evening so all the flyers are sitting here to be delivered today. It's amazing how calm it is now after watching sheets of lightening and high winds whip plants and other items clear off the balcony. I'm glad I was still safely inside when it hit.
Hope all you ladies have an active, fun filled day.

Good morning!
Susan, Happy Anniversary!!!

Thank you for all the anniversary wishes. We were headed to Waffle House last night (for those across the pond, it is a "greasy spoon" diner that serves cheap, yummy food). We ended up at Logan's Roadhouse. Their mushroom skewers are so, so yummy!!

I had a very slow swim this morning. I just cannot move myself quickly through the water. I don't get it. Very frustrating. Maybe I could if I tried harder, but I get in the water and I just want to be lazy! I don't understand that about myself. After 1000 yds, I got out, pulled on some shorts and a shirt, and ran a mile in 8:50. Every other aspect of my racing makes me want to go fast. In the water I just say, "Aaahhh, this is nice!" Phhttt...

Happy Anniversary Jerri.

Mine and hubby Brian's is tomorrow and we have been married for 39 years then after just knowing each other 7 months. I thought we were fast but you got me beat. Way to go on keeping it all together. This IS what balance is all about.

By the way, you haven't changed one iota and are still the cute young girl that is in the photo.

Good morning. Today is our 350th wedding anniversary. We've added the extra zero since our 100th. Haha. Tonight we're eating at Waffle House because we LOVE it!! Weird romantic dinner at Waffle House, with fried eggs and hash browns loaded with cheese and jalapenos.

We only knew each other 11 days on the day we got married. Here is a pic somewhere close to that timeframe.


And here is us now


We are all about BALANCE!

Good morning Ladies,

you guys are so awesome. I can't thank you enough for your continued support and prayers.
My daughter's pain management doctor is right on this making certain that everything goes through quickly so we will have results ASAP. He phone her this morning telling her that the family doctor did not send in the right type of requisition for her MRI so my hubby had to take her down to the hospital out of town to sign the papers. They are still there and hoping this means that they are doing the MRI this morning or at least will have one for her before the end of the week. She goes for the bone scan tomorrow.

Once hubby gets back I need to go to St Catharines to take my mom for more blood work. Her potassium levels were up last week and her blood work keeps coming back indicating that she has moderate t advanced kidney disease. It doesn't make sense as she doesn't feel ill or have any problems with voiding. Sometimes the high numbers may be inaccurate for the condition in people over 75 due to low body fat apparently but red flags have gone up and the doctor is wanting to catch this before anything serious arises from it.
MY mom is 83 and in relatively great health except for the arthritic pain she feels. I am not really worried about the numbers that continue to come back and I think changing her diet can make a difference.

It is another sunny dry and hot day here and this afternoon the humidity is going to begin climbing. We are to be in for a heat wave until after the weekend but I already though we were having one. AS a follower of long range forecasts, I see that the heat wave is going to continue well into September. August does not not show any let up in the hot and dry temperatures we have been having. Little rain is in the forecast which can be devastating to the poor farmers.

We didn't have a precipitous winter and now the same with our spring and summer. Something definitely has changed our environment from cold snowy winters and moderately hot summers with rainy springs to this unusual dry warmer climate.
Hope this winter doesn't come back to bite us in the butt. LOL

I better get ready for my outing so I will bid you all a great day. Many thanks again for your understanding and compassion and the support you have all given me.
I will always be grateful for coming into this team of fantastic ladies.

Susan, I had posted to you yesterday, but I guess I didn't hit "post message." Your family has had more than its share of heartache and hard times. Sending you strength and love from Kentucky.

Good morning Ladies,

today is another hot and sunny day out there.
I hate to even say this but our family is now facing another crisis. It seems that I have been only a source of gloom and doom these past couple of years and I apologize for this. I don't know what else to say except that we are holding on tight right now to keep from falling apart and praying for an outcome that will be favorable and not the worst case scenario.

My daughter who has been undergoing pain management treatment for the past year had 2 MRI's last Saturday on her spine and hips. The results came in yesterday and she was summoned to see her family doctor immediately. I went with her since it sounded rather serious and it appears that she has a mass on her left ovary and several cysts on her right ovary.

Her doctor has ordered another MRI STAT and a bone scan to determine if this this is ovarian cancer and to see if it has metastasized in her bone. We are all on tenterhooks right now as the wait for the diagnostic imaging is most unnerving. I can't understand why so much grief has been happening to our family over the past few years. The challenges we keep facing are finally beginning to break me down.

We can only pray that my daughters appointments will be scheduled within the next week or so ( every moment counts when dealing with ovarian cancer) and that results will be negative for cancer. Right now I can't even imagine how we would react to a diagnosis if it is unfavorable.

ONce again ladies, I ask for prayers. I am going to try my utmost not to let this consume my posts but if you should see that I am MIA for a day or so from time to time, you will know that it is because I just don't want to post when I am feeling so down. I do not want tiring others down through my struggles and although I know that you are all such wonderful friends, I feel enough is enough of hearing about all my wes. Even I am fed up with reading about them.



I wish everyone a great day filled with love, laughter and happy times.

Good Morning All, Headed outside soon before it gets too hot! Trouble with this site bogging down on me again today. Somehow video ads are back in. When I used ad bloc in the past it just slowed down my old computer even more. While I'm ranting I really could do without the root beer float and ice cream ads too! Good grief!

CAZ, I only do the vaseline routine on really down and dirty days; especially when working with mulch as what I bought this year has a dye in it--didn't realize that and will be more careful next year. Or dirt, but I'm pretty much done planting. My new soil is clay and does stain, old garden is great; years of mulch and compost. I'm pretty sure I've got more than a few years on most of you and now even more with the meds my skin has become tissue thin and fragile. The vaseline-gloves + a hot day in the garden has done wonders for my "old lady hands" and the stronger nails are a surprise bonus! But it's not an everyday routine. I keep gloves handy because even dead heading can be a sticky job. I use plain cotton gloves over the vaseline, adding garden gloves over the tops of those.

Need to get moving! Make it a great week everyone!

Joy I sometimes remember my gloves, but then getting dirty in the garden is all part of the joy LOL
Jeri with all the exercise you do I can't imagine any part of you being flabby LOL.. That kid had better stay cute huh? emoticon
Susan I can't remember the last time I went to the cinema! I think it was to see One Shot based on the Lee Childs book, or it might have been the sci-fi film I can't remember the name of right now. A good 3 years anyway.
Cat hope all went well with your appt?

Anne YES We're having a heat wave! and it IS too hot even for me..will be sunbathing this morning before it gets impossible, but...................
Got a call out of the blue from two friends of ours from back in Harlington last night Audrey said "guess where we are?"
Turns our they're on a walking holiday in close by Great Yarmouth and would love to see us. Haven't seen them for about 4 years now, so we're nipping down to their hotel tonight after dinner for drinks at their hotel for a catch up.
AND this morning I ran into a neighbour I've not seen for a while and she's invited me round for a cuppa and a chat this afternoon,
Waiting for invitation number 3 to fall LOL

Ha. Just googled 'orange swafega'. For once I didn't put it off till another day. Sounds like an amazing hand cleaner but is it available outside the UK? I've never heard of it or any similar product here in Canada but it sounds perfect for this use.

Hello one and all.
I took the day off yesterday and just read the latest book I've been enjoying: The Midwife of Hope River. It was good to have a day all to myself. Went back to my friend's garden/weed patch today and worked for a solid 3 hours. Today I focused on getting rid of various 'trees-to-be' which have roots going down almost two feet. She had at least 4 different varieties: elm, maple, aspen and oak, all of which must have seeded themselves over the past 2 years. Also removed numerous chives and other deep rooted herbs which she wants totally removed. I plan on transferring a few of the herbs to my own small garden at the church. Today I remembered to take gardening gloves to attempt to save my 'not very nice at the best of times' hands. I learned my lesson the other day. Thanks to whomever suggested lathering with petroleum jelly.
Also that orange stuff used to clean the stains . . . what is it? I've never heard of it. Will have to check it out.
Anyway, I'm feeling pretty knackered after all the digging and may turn in for the third day in a row failing to reach my 10,000 steps. Oh well.
Take care everyone.

Good morning ladies,

well, we got some rain last night during a thunderstorm. While I love them, my poor little Tyson is so afraid of them (and fireworks) that I had to spend the duration of the storm cuddling him tightly so make him feel safe. He was trembling so badly. I feel so sorry for the little guy and wish I could do something to make him know it is all right. Going to do some research to see if there is something I can do to condition him to not be afraid.

The sun is peeking out periodically this morning and it looks like it will be a pleasant day with lower humidity.

WE say the new Tarzan movie last night and it was just "okay" IT was a bit far fetched as to his capabilities and to seeing all the animals (and I mean all of the animals in the jungle) coming to the rescue. I did enjoy going out but like my grandson says, our theater needs to do some restoration and add more comfortable seat. I found myself having to sit forward and bent after an hour as my back which had been giving me trouble was doing it again.

Other theaters have nice reclining seats. Hubby wanted to get a bag of red liquorice so what he could have bought at the dollar store for $1.25, cost him $5.00 at the movie theater. I am shaking my head here because I think it is ludicrous that they can get away with charging those prices for snacks. Luckily the tickets we got to see the movie were on gift cards that we got for the last 3 Christmases. As you can guess, we dont go to the movies very often. We still have $40.00 worth of gift cards. Perhaps will regift it at Christmas time since we really don't go often enough.

Gerri, you sure are a dedicated grandmother to stay for back to back games. I'm sure you must have gotten up and moved about a few times during the games to stretch it out? I know if I was sitting that long, I would be a cripple without moving about.

Well, just starting my day so going to see what sort of trouble I can get into. Sending lots of good wishes your way for a spectacular and fun day.

LOL JERI, You know you have to love them!

An afternoon in the sun on the bleachers IS more exhausting than a good hike! But I do miss them.

This seems to be working a little better for me, but when I'm in email my keyboard is working just fine. Have a great day everyone!

Good morning. I'm exhausted today. The softball game turned into back to back games for my granddaughter. We sat in the sun all afternoon, from about 2:00 til about 7:00. I am dragging today!! I did manage to get up and swim, but it was extremely slow. Then I did some upper body work. Yesterday my grandson informed me that my arms are flabby, and I don't really have muscles. Hmmphh. Kids. It's a good thing he's cute.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Overcast here and humid. I had planned on getting out and getting the vine off the side of the house above the foundation this morning. But I see by the map that storms are closing in on us before that's going to happen. At best i might get in a walk. emoticon That was going to be a "suit up and bug repellent deep vegetation task". In the tall stuff at the back of the driveway. I don't do bug repellent unless I'm going to be out long enough to make it worth it. Then I come in and shower for the day.

Let me share gardening friends: I always wear gloves! But the color even comes through them sometime when I'm in the dirt and mulch.This year I started slathering my hands and nails with petroleum jelly before putting on the gloves. I've never had nice nails, dry, ridged and brittle best describes them ; rarely able to grow them even to my fingertips. A month ago they were in good enough condition to get a professional manicure.
Closing. Having troupble even seeing my text/ . It's taking forever to appear. . VERNA: Judy is MNNICE

Joy when I say "in shape" it'll be for about a week, just long enough for weeds to take hold again LOL. Glad you're feeling good hun.
Jeri good that you and you daughter can run together, and it's good to have a slow-ish day onve in a while LOL
Susan Sorry to hear about your back.I hear you about getting worn down, it's hard to accept that we the old bones ain't what they were LOL and for the record I push it too!!! I think we all do on this team. Better that thn sitting on the couch stuffing our faces eh? TAKE IT EASY
May enjoy your garden hun. I get brown stains on my hands and use orange swafega to get it off.
CAT GOOD LUCK!!
Verna have a good week hun.

Beautiful here today, going for a beach walk, one more job to do in the garden before it gets too hot then rewarding all my hard work with a laze in the sun!

Ok gals ---has everyone noticed that there is not one of us that sits on the couch eating bon bons all day?? We are one busy bunch and we are all 50 plus and the majority 60 plus. We're not only busy we're smart. We're dedicated to being in shape and having a nice shape.

Susan, I'm sorry that you are having back troubles. A word of advice---sit yourself down on the chesterfield and eat a few nuts (better for you than bon bons) and don't do anything more than is necessary today. Your right, a 60 year old body needs a longer recoup time than a 30 year old one. Take good care of yourself.

Mayie, no I don't have a prodigious memory. Some days I have better recall is all and other days I have a hard time remembering my own name!! I know exactly what you mean about those darn weeds in the garden. I got brave and went out to take a look at mine today YIKES I have quite a crop coming on and I'm not talking veggies!! With all the rain the weed seeds are germinating like there is no day tomorrow. The weather is suppose to change tomorrow and I think there is a full moon on the horizon too. Watch out for the wackos!!!

Jeri, you are one running, cycling mama. Your DD can't even keep up to you LOL. Your niece and sister have just crossed my mind and I'm wondering how they are doing.

Caz, you are doing so well after your surgery. I bet you were indeed shattered (interesting word you used there!) after 5 hours gardening. That's HUGE for anyone never mind a recuperating person. Good thing you have Pete's help. I have a Pete too but he's not a gardening kinda guy!!

And then there is Joy, the one who is always upbeat, looks for the silver lining and who is such an inspiration to all of us. Love your new profile pic by the way and happy to read you are on track with fitness and keeping those calories in check.

Cat, how are you feeling? Is all that testing done and do you have all the results? My heart goes out to you when I read about the packing. Seems that's all I've been doing since April and I'm not even moving!!! Moving all right, from one room to another, from upstairs, downstairs and in between and the house looks like a cyclone hit it. Don't know where anything is (good excuse though, folks can't say I'm getting dementia!!) don't know where to put anything anymore.

Don't know what to keep and what to throw out. Sound familiar?? Ah well, "One day we'll look back and say it was fun" or so the song goes anyway.

Lynette where are you? Still Stampeding? I hope you are doing well and simply too busy dancing at one of the hot spots in town to post.

I think it was you Joy that mentioned a Judy. I'm not familiar with that name somehow, what is her SP name?

Hi Patti hope all's well at your end.

I might not be back for a few days as this new week comes rolling in with a 100 things to do. Have a great week everyone.

Howdy all. Another busy day but we are almost done getting the house ready to show.
Only another day and we should be done. Tomorrow is errands day, though.
Next is the basement storage. That prospect is terrifying.
I am too tired to address you all but have read your posts and see lots of activity.

Speaking of listening to your body, It was super hot outside today, so my 10 mile run turned into 8.25 miles. I'm definitely okay with that!! My granddaughter has a softball tournament game this afternoon, and just sitting out there in the sun will wear me out.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Hello all.
SUSAN: It's good to hear you are trying to listen to your body and give it time to rest and recouperate. I used to be like you, always push push pushing, but I seem to be more accepting of the fact that my 63 year old body just needs different things than perhaps I might want to offer it. I know I was suffering greatly in the sleep department. I now listen when it's telling me I am overly tired and head for bed sometimes as early as 9:30. I no longer beat myself up if I've failed to reach my daily step goal. I definitely no longer hear the words "You're lazy," since daughter moved out. It was really unhealthy for me to hear those negative words on an ongoing basis. As JOY always says, Life if good.
Not certain of my plans for the day. May head back to the garden patch to pull more weeds. Will have to remember to take gardening gloves as my right hand is still stained brown and my back is achy.
Have a good one, all you wonderful Sparkers.

Good morning everyone,

it's a beautiful day out there. I went to bed early last night because I have been very tired at the end of the day this past week and have been having back pain since Friday.
I have come to the conclusion that once again I have been pushing myself too hard and need to take a break.
With my64th birthday coming up soon, maybe I need to realize that I can't do quite as much as I did in my thirties without suffering some consequences.
Why can't the body just be happy that it is getting lots of exercise. YOu would think no matter what age, if you are continuously working out, your body would respond in a good way.
I am my own worst enemy at times when I continue to challenge myself to go farther, push harder and longer. I think the strength fitness Thursday night was what pushed me over the edge and the pain I have been having is probably from that.

Today I have decided to NOT do ANY fitness and just take it easy. I have to rest my body more often. Of course I will walk my dogs and do what ever house tidying up needs done but other than that it is rest day for this old gal.

I hope everyone is having a great start to this day and will enjoy every moment of it.

Good morning! I'm waiting for my daughter to be awake, ready and done with breakfast, and then I'm running to her house (3 1/2 miles away) to go for a short run with her. Then I'll run back home. It's an easy day, so it will be slow, with a break at her house because she's never ready when I get there, and then a break before I run back to my house, because I'll have to wait for her to put the dogs in the house so they don't follow me down the road. I always have to wait for her, and that's okay. I'm happy to get the chance to be active with her.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, All is well here and I was back on track yesterday with fitness minutes and keeping calories inbounds. Not at 100% but feeling pretty good. Beautiful morning here!

CAZ, I'm envious of your having your gardens almost "in shape". I'm not even close and guess I won't be; I'll just keep chipping away at them. Usually by mid July I can relax and just enjoy them. Just never got caught up in the spring and early summer though. To others, they look great and I get a lot of compliments. But, when I look out I also see a list of jobs yet to be done. It keeps me moving; there's always a silver lining!

May, you are doing great with your posts. I don't think anyone is catching everyone every day; I know I don't. If it becomes a chore---well that's just not what we're here for.

CAT, I've been in this house almost 50 years. I can't even imagine trying to move! Pace yourself and remember some things are well worth hiring done!

Anne, Hospice is such a wonderful organization for patients AND their families. Really helps ease them through difficult times. Bless you all.

Judy, missing you! Patti, your consistency is admirable. Lynette, hope you are doing OK . Susan, take time for Susan today. Remember everyone--Life is Good.

It's Sunday; seek out whatever you need. Hugs.


HI VERNA! LOVED YOUR POST! GET SOME REST TODAY! emoticon

Joy what a great way to spend the day.
Susan I can watch 3D but when I come out of the cinema I can't focus. Horrid feeling.
Jeri glad you've got time to yourself to do as you please- those are the best days.
My I hear you hun, it's a workout for sure.
Patti glad you got a good walk in hun.
Cat and this is only the start LOL. moving house is quite a challenge.
Verna rest well.
Anne sticky here too. Must be hot for Pete to go commando emoticon


I got over 5 hours done in the garden yesterday- was shattered at the end but felt good at what was accomplished- Pete's been reshaping my bushes for me- he's more ruthless than I am and they all look a lot tidier. Rain caught us out at 5pm so it was time to call it a day.
Only half the back garden to go now and one major time consuming job to do out front and that's it, Back to ship shape and Bristol fashion.

Hello Ladies,
It's been a good day. I loved getting out for a walk before doing housework and laundry and then I just finished walking again after dinner which I did myself on the barbecue. Usually hubby does the outdoor grilling but he had to go pick up our grandson so I did it and it was delicious.

Jerri, I used to cycle a few years ago and loved going the distance. I gave it up when I developed coxadinia. Good for you getting a day to yourself, a well deserved day at that!

Mayie, glad you got your fliers all out and was able to get your garden weeded. I did mine the other day but it is so dry and hot that even the weeds are hardly growing.

Patti, the farmers market sounds great and mall walking is also a great way to get in the fitness. I use the mall in the winter months at time or bad weather.

CAT, I think 2.5 miles is a great walk and with all the work you are doing to pack your home up, I'm sure you are getting muscles used and not even know it.

Verna all I can say is Rain rain go away!
I can't imagine so much rain but please feel free to send some this way as we are having the worst drought ever.

Hope everyone is having a great day and Sunday will bring lots of happy times as well.

Hello VERNA. Welcome back. Have missed your posts. Either you have a prodigious memory or you take notes on who and what in order to respond. I am always soooooooo impressed.
Your garden sounds a lot like mine. Very slow. The lettuce is barely an inch and a half. I need not have worried about the tomato plants being destroyed by cutworms. Yes, it was both frustrating and disappointing but there are so very many 'pop ups' in the garden; if they bear fruit there won't be a shortage of tomatoes.
CAT: Yes I finally got all my flyers delivered. Then I pulled and dug weeds from a friend's vegetable garden to be. It's a large area and covered with quack grass and other weeds. She has two small children and will definitely not be planting this year. She said the field used to be full of dill which they got rid of. Lovely raspberry bushes that are being taken over by the weeds.
Definitely used some muscles today.
So here's where my brain falters and I lose track of names. Oh well, best wishes for a great rest of the weekend. It's raining here so returned home to scrub my hands (forgot to bring garden gloves).

HOWDY from Alberta

The Stampede is on in Calgary and I have been watering plants there for the last 9 days. Tonight is the last night. I am helping my friend who has a plant business water 1400 potted plants every night, starting at just after 11 p m every night so my Night Hawk personality has had its fix for another year!! Amazing artwork is displayed in the building which is worth many many dollars so we are in "rich" surroundings. I'm getting tired, especially since the last 3 days were too busy for me to take a nap in the early evenings before work. Today I am catching up on reading all the posts and basically vegging. I did take a stroll around the yard to see what the flowers are doing. Didn't bother going down to see the garden. It is not doing much these days anyway. Everything is smaller and slower this year. I had to replant because of initial low germination so that explains the lateness in growth and maturity.

AND rain ........ We have had 6.5 inches in the last 3 days so I am sending some to anyone who needs it. There has been small hail mixed in with the drops the last couple of days. Usually we get 70 mm in July and we have had 104 already.

Joy your GD is a very talented gal. You have reason to be proud --- plus she is gorgeous. Good to read that you are feeling better and that your doctor's appointment went well. Unfortunately Meds always have side effects but you continue to battle through them all.

I would love to get to Kentucky to tour some of the farms and to go to one of the big races. My own horse should be back home soon. We hadn't been riding for some time so hubby thought we should have someone "work" him for a few days, which has turned into weeks. He is a quarter horse who was born here and was imprinted by me within a few hours of his birth. He loved to fancy step as a youngster so I named him Jigs.

Mayie, you have been delivering flyers for a long time. I can't imagine doing 800. My kids used to deliver when they were young and I used to go with them from time to time and if either was practicing a sport on an evening that was flyer day, I would do it for them. Not something I would have wanted to do every week though but it was a great form of exercise.

Susan, It would seem that you have caught up on your sleep and have your energy back!

Jeri, You have much energy!! That's a fantastic idea to ride ahead of your friends then come back to them for more bang for your proverbial buck and still enjoy the camaraderie of friends. I am sorry, however, to read that your RA is giving you trouble again. I guess it is constant trouble with maybe some lulls once in a while.

Caz, looks like you are coming along nicely with your recovery. Good to hear.

Cat, so happy to read you have found a new home and what a lovely home it is. Hopefully your current home will sell quickly. Busy time for you right now.

Well, I can't think of anything else to post so will call it quits. For anyone I've missed, sorry. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I have taken some pics of the plant displays we water and will post a couple soon.

The days are long. Every morning we wake about 5 am and after a time of reading, etc we start in on the move chores.
Working through all the drawers, shredding what needs to be and going through the kitchen cabinets and drawers for charity. I have been putting stuff on the island and taking pictures of the group before bagging them up. Then they go in the spare room for delivery later. Also ARC is coming by next week and will pick up stuff.
Also put bags of paper together for a recycle run.
Getting walks in but only about 2.5 miles.

What a beautiful KY scene, Joy. The tour sounds great.
Jeri, I have to ditto CAZ. Your energy makes me feel puny.
Susan, hope the transplant news is good.
Joy, glad you had good doctor visit.
Patti, sounds like a Sat of chores and some walking time.
Mayie, get your deliveries done today? Must be warm walking so much on pavement.
Everyone, have a stellar Sat evening and Sun morning.

Today I went to the mall and got my walking in. It was sort of hard with all the exhibits that they have in the mall this weekend. I then went to the farmers market and got fresh veggies and then to the store for the rest of my items

JERI: What a fabulous bike ride with friends! 16 miles is EXCELLENT. I love riding my ol' rattletrap of a bike; just wish it was a bit more reliable. Enjoy your weekend just doing stuff on your own terms.
JOY: I love your phrase 'Life is good'. Every time I find myself thinking that lately I automatically think of you.
SUSAN: You are always sooooooo active. You blow me away with all your energy and enthusiasm.
CAT: Good luck getting your house ready to put on the market. You are going to love the new place.
To one and all, have a lovely weekend. I plan to be digging weeds (a lot of weeds) in a friend's garden. That should help me move some muscles.

Today was a gorgeous day for a bike ride!! We got some sprinkles, but no rain. I ride faster than my friends, so I rode up a distance then circled back to them. Then I'd go up again and circle back again. I ended up with 16 miles, and they ended up with 13.3. It was their longest ride, so yay for them!! It felt fantastic outside this morning!! We are fortunate to have The Legacy Trail. Followed up by McDonald's hash browns and fruit n yogurt parfait. I've got the weekend to myself, so today I'm just doing stuff on my own terms. No hurrying, no taking anyone anywhere, nothing like that. Just doing stuff.

Good Morning All,
today is pleasant but cloudy which makes for another fabulous walking day. I want to get out on my own today so will head out shortly.

Hubby and i are going to see the new Tarzan movie tonight. I have been waiting for it to be in the theater without being in 3D. My eyes can't handle the 3 D images and I just want to enjoy the movie in a normal viewing way. I am an avid fan of Tarzan.

Joy I love the pictures of your tour of the thoroughbred far, Horses are my favorite animal and always have been.

I am sending out best wished to all for a fantastic weekend and my your days be filled with healthy living.

Good Morning All, There is nothing like the Thoroughbred Farms that surround Lexington in th Bluegrass Region! Just a gorgeous drive and we took the back roads; stunning scenery and a beautiful morning. Our tour was OLD FRIENDS FARM, a retirement farm for Thoroughbreds, racehorses and others. Great tour, lots of walking.
But definitely not aerobic walking. NIce breeze, beautiful morning, good friends and the tour and guide were outstanding! Took a couple of hours then we went to lunch. So, it was a pretty full day; I did cancel my dinner plans. I was ready to relax when I got home mid afternoon.
Another rainy morning here and I appreciate the rain but am really missing getting out in the yard. Hoping for yard time this afternoon. Feeling good this morning. One day at a time, definitely have more peace of mind after talking this week with my doctor. All is well. Enjoy your weekend! Life is good! Not always easy, but good. Smiles.

Cat I always feel for the posties and milkmen on cold wet days, and they soldier on. My postie has a challenge with his one of his colleagues as to who can keep wearing shorts and t-shirt into winter the longest. Hardy follk Norfolk folk LOL

Lovely day here, not too hot so back out into the garden today to finish off the front garden at least and maybe get the rear done too. Asked Pete if he can trim and shape too large bushes that are too much hard work on my arm and chest muscles right now- still healing and I don't want to do any damage.

Hi gals.
Mayie, you remind me of a postman. Never rain or snow, blah.....
Everyone, hi.
Another brutal day for us starting at the gym at 6am.
The sign went up in our yard but the bank told me we can't list it until something else happens and that may be two weeks............ugh.
One step forward, five back.
As long as we close by 8/15 on the new place we are going to be okay.
Actually it gives us time to clean out this place without lookers coming through.
Realtors not real happy though.

Good afternoon all.
I am late logging on since I had other things to do and had to be out of the apartment. Glad to be able to finally sit down and visit with you ladies.
JOY: Thanks for the hint re: commenting on one and all; however, I am somewhat computer/technology challenged and would have no idea how to open two files on any site so I'm going to have to continue relying on my memory. Hopefully people will understand when I don't mention them specifically.
SUSAN: Glad you are getting better sleep and had a GREAT day yesterday. It's wonderful when that happens. Thank you for the sunshine! Everyone is happier today, me especially.
Congrats to CAT (Hope I got it right) on the purchase of your new house. Hopefully yours sells quickly.
As for the flyers . . . no I did not get them all delivered yesterday. As sometimes happens, I just run out of time or energy and have to leave it till the next day. That's what I'll be doing after I finish here. I've done this job for 22 years and people know I am reliable and they will get their adverts before the start of the sale. In the old days I used to deliver to 800 houses; nowadays I'm down to 210 and I wouldn't want to be doing any more because it's really brutal delivering in the winter and I only get half a cent for each flyer. Highway robbery really, but I think of it as a way to force me to walk at least a few days a week.
OK now the brain has begun to fizzle so I'll just wish everyone a wonderful weekend.

Good morning ladies,

I had started this post talking about the newest terrorist attack (On France) but have decided to erase it because it is just too sad. God Bless the families that have had to endure losses because of it and may God keep us all safe.

The sunshine is back here and it is going to be another warm day. By last night I had to turn the air on again as the house had crept up to 80F. I am not looking forward to our electric bill but we just can not handle the humidity as we have gotten older. In our other homes we settled for window fans and finally got a couple of window air conditioners but in this home we have the central air. We use it only when the house reaches 80F and for the past several days it has been running constantly.

I am off to my mother's so I can take her for blood work, so, I better get ready.
After my good sleep last night I am ready to face the day.

Hope youall have an awesome day and a fabulous weekend.

Joy, that sounds like a fun day!

I couldn't get my husband to wake up this morning. I slept later than usual because he said he wanted to sleep as late as possible. So I decided to ride my bike on the trainer and then do weights/upper body at home instead of going to the Y. That allowed me to sleep until 5:00. So I got up, got my bike done, and went in the bedroom to do my weights. I flipped on the lights, and he said, "Why are you turning on the lights?" I said, "Ummm, because it's 6:00!" And he told me to let him sleep. So I went to the Y (2 blocks away) and used their weights. I told him I'd be back by 6:30, and I would definitely be turning on the lights. Haha. He was awake when I got back home.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Busy day today, alas, busy is not the same as active. Have been having trouble getting my activity in but sometimes busy is the better choice if it's a rare chance to spend time with friends. Off to "Old Friends Farm" with two friends this morning. A farm for retired Thoroughbreds. Should include lots of walking--but the start/stop kind. Hoping for good weather. Have a great weekend everyone!
